Recalculate on variable change

I have a variable which the user can change in a drop-down list. A change of this variable will trigger a re-calculation of data. Can I have code which will start this re-calculation when the user changes the variable (after a suitable warning)? I could use an ask dialogue if I could attach code to ...

Re: A Very Strange Error

Due to advances in display technology the human eye
can't discern any difference between the latest
display resolution and the previous one so in
fact we all have "low-res" eyes now.

Waiting for the bionic eye implant before I
get a new monitor.

Re: A Very Strange Error

Craig Tried all the usual but as usual I'd found a new way to confuse LC. I'd declared the array as global but when I added it to the list I'd separated it from the previous global with a "." instead of a ",". Took a bit of finding what with these hi-res monitors and low-res eyes. Must try harder bu...

Re: A Very Strange Error

Would still like to know how I can watch a variable
so that the stack stops when it changes as I now
have an array which "disappears" at some point
after it's been initialized.

A fairly usual facility in all the programming languages
I've used.

Re: Drag and Drop

Thanks for that. Will give it a try.

Was surprised to find on listening to
Pete Seeger again that his songs seem
to be as relevant now as they were back
in the '60s. And of course I was "there".

Do you mean move the field? Your title sort of indicated you wanted to move a line within that field.

Want the user to be able to move the field as it
might otherwise obscure other info.

Drag and Drop

Can I have a scrolling list field which can be moved
by the user?

Re: What the ZZZZZ?

Well, I found the mysterious "Z" just where I expected it to be - despite the fact that I'd searched the same code a number of times for it. Definitely got a gremlin in the works. Some code to put numbers in a field to let the use know work was going on didn't - until I put in a break-point and step...

Re: What the ZZZZZ?

Without seeing code it is hard to say.. Do a search for "Z" or a search for the field name incase there is a spot you missed.. I did all that - more than once without success. Think I'll make a copy with a new name "ZZZZZ", show all the hidden stuff and hide the things I know are OK. There might be...

What the ZZZZZ?

I have a scrolling list field and during development I wrote code to put "Z" after certain fields. Now I don't want the "Z" I can't get rid of them. I've been through all the code and can't find anything that is adding the "Z". Another gremlin? An undocumented feature? A brain failure? Suggestion on...

And another thing...

I have some code which uses a loop repeat with x = 10 to 50 after each loop I want numbers put into a variable which includes x e.g. when x = 10 put Ones into "Ones" & x --- want it to go into variable Ones10 but LC gives me a "bad destination" for all the combinations and variations I've tried. Of ...

Re: A Field by any other name...

Fixed this problem but not sure how.

I removed all the lock/unlock screens and
replaced only one or two which were
necessary for view comfort. Also made
a few minor changes so who knows?

Still, hard to believe that LC can't find a field.

A Field by any other name...

I have a number of scrolling list fields ListField1 to ListField4. This worked until recently when I got an error on a line which put values into ListField1 claiming that there was no such object. After a change of field name the problem stopped - for a while - then started again at the same line. S...

Going but not coming

I have a message field which I want to be visible during a long process - even though the cursor is set to wait. Strange, but when the visible is set to true in the code it doesn't show but if I make it visible in the Inspector the programme makes it invisible at the relevant code line. Any possible...

Re: Dictionary Query

Craig I should have included 7.1.2. In all further posts you should assume likewise. Don't like the new Dictionary or the new Inspector - and I know I'm not alone in that. OTOH I'm really keen on the Project Browser despite its habit of leaving the cursor on busy (? the hourglass one) when I use a f...
